A methodological framework for the determination of environmental quality in coastal areas is presented. The method is based on the identification of a series of characteristics (e.g. water quality, hazard level, potential for use) which can be used to describe different environmental components (e.g. coastal waters, natural hazards, human features) using certain indicators (e.g. ppm of Cited by: Assessing the environmental quality status in estuarine and coastal systems: Comparing methodologies and indices Article (PDF Available) in Ecological Indicators 8(4) .
Beach Indicators Indicators are measures of environmental quality used to assess the status and trends of environmental conditions. They summarize complex information in an easily understood format, and allow states with similar problems to compare issues. Indicators also enable managers to measure progress toward achieving their goals. NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of members of the committee responsible for the report were chosen for their special competencies and with regard for.
ENVIRONMENTAL MEASURES AND THE COASTAL ZONE _I00, ajppropriation for the Joint Legislative Committee on Environmental Quality. They issued a detailed report which was well received at the legislature. Senator Sam Nunez foresees a hard-working year for the Committee--they hope. These indicators are also now part of unattended water quality monitoring of estuarine and coastal sounds. Data from regular ferry crossings were used as indicators of large-scale assessment of the impacts of Hurricane Isabel (Sept. ) on North Carolina's Pamlico Sound ().

The indicators will serve several important purposes. First, they will assist DNREC in developing a more accurate picture of the environmental quality of the Coastal Zone.

The ultimate aim of Ecological Indicators is to integrate the monitoring and assessment of ecological and environmental indicators with management practices. The journal provides a forum for the discussion of the applied scientific development and review of traditional indicator applications as well as for theoretical, modelling and quantitative approaches such as index development.
Therefore, there are 18 Core indicators for Environmental Quality which may be supplemented with up to 14 optional indicators. The higher number of indicators for Water Resources and Pollution reflects the importance of clean water for coastal ics: 5 issues.We have assessed the environmental impacts of extreme natural events such as Hurricane Katrina (USEPAEngle et al.
) and other major hurricanes (Balthis et al. ). We have developed new ecological indicators and other diagnostic tools that improve our methods and abilities to assess coastal ecosystems.

The BEACH Act requires states and territories to adopt more protective water quality standards for pathogens and pathogen indicators in coastal recreational waters.
